Urban Outfitters Asking Employees to Work for Free
As if! The popular retail chain Urban Outfitters is asking employees to volunteer to work six hour shifts on weekend ahead of the holiday shopping season.
This is insane. Oh, sure! I'll give up MY free time to volunteer for a non-community event. Um, that's not how it works in this country. Have you shopped at Urban Outfitters? A t-shirt could run you $70. But they want employees to give up their weekends to work for free, especially during the holidays when time with family and friends away from your vocation is hard to come by anyway? I'm scratching my head.
